Adeje Ayuntamiento has announced that next Saturday, 17 September, a pink wave will take over Tenerife Top Training – T3 – with the annual Swim for Life event being held there between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
Once more the beneficiaries of this charity event will be the Spanish Cancer Association (AECC), Amate, cancer research and the Pink Room help centre situated in Adeje. This is the third year the swim is taking place, and is held under the general Walk for Life banner, a cancer walk that takes place in South Tenerife every December.
Swimmers must be over 12 years of age, and have until 12 September to register to take part in the official competitive races (25m, 50m and 100m, different strokes): send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The council says that anyone who doesn’t want to swim can just turn up and join in the fun on the day, and take part in the Aquagym and enjoy the wonderful paella, but they will still need to register beforehand. Just send an email to the same address. There is more information on donating and taking part is available HERE.
The first 150 swimmers to register will receive a free pink commemorative swimming cap and all those taking part in the day can enter a prize draw to win a free weekend for two in La Gomera.
The council thanks the following bodies for support: Walk for Life, Adeje Council, Tenerife Top Training, Rotary Club Tenerife South and Swim Club Tenerife Masters, as well as the Tenerife Swimming Referees, and various private companies.
